DMN: Ratatouille

“Good food is like music you can taste, color you can smell. There is excellence all around you. You need only to be aware to stop and savor it.” – Gusteau If there ever was a quote that summed up my love of good food, this is it. Not only do I love to eat […]

DMN: Alice in Wonderland

A veeery merry unbirthday! To who? To Jacs! August 23rd is Jaclynn’s half-birthday, and we celebrate it every year. I know you’re shocked, right?

DMN: The Sword in the Stone

When I say “actually” I don’t mean to imply that I don’t love the movie, the scene where Arthur is turned into a bird/fish/squirrel is […]
